Hey, I'm Taylor Ackerman, I am a children's illustrator making work under the name Studio Looong (an ode to my small, horizontally-gifted studio mates). I love making work that is whimsical, easy to relate to, and just a tiny bit off-beat. Knobby people, bug-eyed creatures and quirky narratives are some of my favorite subjects.

I graduated from Bradley University in 2015 with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design and now I work as a Designer at the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois. I spend every minute I can outside of work drawing and illustrating. I strive to become a published children's book illustrator.

Kelli Roos has admired art since the age of 3. She wasn't studying DaVinci, but Scooby Doo was just as enthralling at that age. Throughout the afternoon, Kelli would watch as many cartoons as she was allowed. This prompted Kelli's mom to write a note in a journal, “She is a cartoon nut.” As Kelli grew, she emulated the cartoons and comics around her, developing pencil control and learning more and more about storytelling. To continue her education, Kelli entered college and focused on graphic design and drawing and received her BFA in graphic design with an emphasis in figure drawing in May 2000.Cole Haan Zerogrand 2020 , First Look at New Running Shoes

Joseph Gallo has been an artist/experimental print maker for over 35 years.

Early on, collaborations with other artists during his nearly three decade involvement with father and co-founder of Editions in Cast Paper, started Joseph on a life long involvement with all that is intrinsic to paper.
The list of artists during the rise of this fine arts publishing house that specialized in hand paper making include, Victor Vasarely, Agam, Hanna Barbara, Peter Max, Rene Gruau, and Stan Lee, to name a few. (Examples available for viewing at "Joseph Gallo art" on Joseph is a life long artist.

'What truly drives me is the endless path of discovery that takes place through experimentation and collaboration.
Gallo's current works involve a series of preparations to pre-print papers for Giclee. 'Realizing I could create Photoshop-like effects chemically was a huge breakthrough for me' Gallo adds while discussing his processes.
As far as subject matter, Gallo is motivated by human expression. I recently created works of art for the Jimi Hendrix foundation.
This project involved coupling 35 mm black and white, never before seen prints with Hubble deep space digital imagery. The end result, is a moving graphic depiction of Jimi's sonic inflection (available through, Dan Jaffe(805) 497 7300). Also see,

From print making to createing drawings, paintings and to digital imagery one thing stays the same for me. I am determined to employ the tools best suited to convey the feeling I want to express by what moves me originally. As a result, I feel my initial personal experience inspired from the source of the moment is imparted into the work forever.

Regarding specific mediums, I feel at ease with pen and ink, graphite, charcoal, fabric dyes, colored pencil, and oil pastels for rendering. I have worked with oils, acrylics, and water color. As well, I have been employing digital art (17 yrs) and its output for the last four years . I believe in Giclee printing enough so to have acquired a 42" HP 800 that I generate all of my distressed photo works and digital art onto canvas and pre-print, chemically manipulated water color paper with.

Aside from creating fine art, I have always relished the opportunities I have had come along to do graphics for musicians (C.D. covers and albums) The last Gentlemen's "Something to someone" or "cousin of the blues" for Keith Harden, or the promo posters for the Laurence Hobgood Quartet just this last summer. I am always happy to work up promotional material for "Go Retro" the everything vintage shop as well. There has been quit a bit of this activity for me over the years. Numerous examples of my electronic art and chemically altered Giclees can be seen at (search "Joseph Gallo"). Also see, numerouse works at "Pinterest" again, Joseph Gallo.

This artist is available for the generation of custom and site specific installations. Joseph Gallo is also available for corporate/commercial design as well as decorative design. Years of hands on experience with plastics casting, mold making, paper making, silk screening, industrial painting/surface design, fiberglass, epoxy and plaster molding make this artist, designer a solid addition to any artistic, industrial or craft production settingKlær Nike

Influenced by the home gaming culture as a child, Jason’s earlier material consisted of small doodled characters that eventually developed to more detailed comic book style illustrations in his adolescence. These illustrations made for a suitable transition into a more “Fine Arts” approach to subject matter.

While working toward his AFA at Parkland College, Jason studied drawing, watercolor, and design under professors Don Lake and Ann Coddington Rast. Introductions to new mediums such as pen and ink and photography also contributed to an expanding knowledge of artistic processes and relationships.

Upon transferring to the University of Illinois to pursue a BFA in Graphic Design, Jason found digital media’s aesthetic applications to be discomfortingly unfamiliar, but provocative and challenging. The influence of this new visual culture set the stage for continued interest and further exploration in the relationships of combined media, its levels of communication, and social intent.สินค้าออกกำลังกายผู้หญิง คุณภาพ ราคาพิเศษ
